There’s no shortage of companies or apps that seek to make healthy living easy and accessible. And now, there’s a new kid on the block. SereneBook is the new subscription-based online directory of alternative healers and holistic practitioners. It’s basically the ClassPass for wellness. Expect 3 one-on-one treatments ranging from reiki, and doula services to astrology, for one automatically billed price. While the platform will roll out initially in Los Angeles and New York City in January, San Francisco, Boston, Houston, and Sydney are next in line.
